AMARINDER, SIDHU UP THE ANTE

The rift between Punjab Chief Minister Capt. Amarinder Singh and MLA Navjot Singh Sidhu widened further, with Amarinder Singh challenging his former minister to contest against him from Patiala and lose his security deposit like Gen JJ Singh. The Chief Minister while referring to Sidhu being offensive against him over shoddy investigation in the SIT probe in to Kotkapura police firing case, said, “If Sidhu has doubt on my capability to lead the government, he should test the ground by contesting election against me from Patiala.” The Chief Minister was talking in the context of reports of Sidhu being active in Patiala and his wife Dr Navjot Singh Sidhu contesting from Patiala (Rural). Replying to CM’s attack on him, Navjot Singh Sidhu in a tweet said , “Efforts to derail Punjab’s conscience will fail … My Soul is Punjab and Punjab’s Soul is Guru Granth Sahib Ji … Our fight is for Justice & punishing the guilty, an assembly seat is not even worth discussion in the same breathe!!” By attacking the Congress Chief Minister of his own government, Sidhu wants to join some other party, said Capt. Amarinder, adding, “But neither BJP nor Akalis will take Sidhu. He has limited choice; either stay in the Congress or join AAP.”
